Since its creation in 2007, the Éco-quartier Pierrefonds-Roxboro has been heading environmental projects in the borough of Pierrefonds-Roxboro.
Éco-quartiers aim to help Montréal residents become agents of environmental change in their community. The Éco-quartier is the borough’s main source of information on household waste management, horticultural programs and the sales of trees for private use. It is also involved in several aspects of the Local Sustainable Development Plan 2017-2020.
The Éco-quartier program focuses on community environmental action and education, and was created by the City of Montréal in 1995. VertCité has been responsible for the Éco-quartier program in Pierrefonds-Roxboro since 2015.
